Phil's vocal contributions to the 60's/70's were flat and loud to the detriment of an already shaky vocal mix usually resulting in the horror that are GD "harmonies".As for his later contributions they are so bad as to be unprofessional.Do it in the Road,Tom Thumb Blues and the rest are just an embarrassment.

For at least the first five years Phil's vocals were a crucial part of the Grateful Dead vocal mix. It would have been to the detriment of the bands 'sound' if they hadn't been there.

Not in the studio...AmBea/Work prove that...and a few times he pulled it off live (shows close to the studio sessions of 1970; practice makes perfect, or at least, improvement in Phil's case).
